A Süphan , Adilcevaz, Van.
These little girls are out in their front yard, and so is this Armenian tombstone. -©2016 TriciVenola

“For centuries we lived in peace … — a Turkish acquaintance in Van.  The Urartians left artifacts all over Van province, mute testimony to a vanished culture.  I met many people who said, “Oh my grandmother was Armenian…” etc. The little girls were standing in their own front yard over an exquisitely carved tombstone that was obviously half-buried, probably under their cinderblock house in the sheep pasture.
